SDCC 2019: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be Marvel’s first (PG-13) horror film

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

Even though the multiverse was teased in Spider-Man: Far From Home, it was only a lie put together by Mysterio. But it looks like we’re finally going to be exploring that area in the MCU through Doctor Strange.

Scott Derrickson will be returning to helm the sequel. Derrickson came on stage and told the crowd that he would only do the sequel if it explored the sole reason why he loves the comics in the first place, the horror. Thus, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be Marvel’s first (PG-13) gothic horror film.

In addition, Kevin Feige told the crowd that Elizabeth Olsen would be in the film as well. But here’s the kicker, you’re going to have to watch Marvel Studios’ “WandaVision” because the events in the series will connect directly to this film.

This direct series-to-film connection will be Marvel’s first. Yes, Jeph Loeb has always said that the Marvel television series were connected to the feature films. Unfortunately, that was never the case. We did get a brief glimpse of this with James D’Arcy’s (“Agent Carter”) Jarvis in Endgame but that was it. It was mostly a one-sided affair from the very beginning.

Now, we can finally say that the series will truly have a symbiotic relationship to the feature films. So get your Disney+ accounts ready.
